Eustis Circle is the first of five novels about life in Northeastern North America in the last five decades of the 20th century. It tells the story of John Chauncey and his friends. They grow up after WW2 in the McCarthy years and struggle with freedom, conformity, friends and neighbors, abuse, poverty and great wealth but grow up and learn to love reality. Some of them will turn out to be ordinary and others will show exceptional talents. Because of certain shared experiences in the early school grades, they will remain lifelong friends.
